Abstract [en]

Many people with learning disabilities (LD) live socially isolated lives and are often in need of more contactwith the surrounding community. Although the Internet can be an important arena for finding friends, partners and experiencing greater participation in the community, some scholars question whether these possibilities that the Internet offers are really there. In this study we have interviewed Swedish young people with ID, parents as well as professionals about Internet as an arena for identity formation, love, sex and companionship. The findings shows that young people mostly feel confident and in no need of support. Professionals and parents, on the other hand, consider the Internet an arena for positive opportunities, but also with risks. The professionals seemed to be more worried about the risks than the parents who state that the opportunities outweigh the disadvantages. For parents, the real risk is described as the risk of loneliness and social isolation. Considering young people's need for autonomy, it is of great importance that parents and professionals balance their level of support depending on the needs of the young person. Furthermore, the results will be discussed in light of 'positive risk-taking'. What strategies can be used by young people with LD and supported by parents and professionals, so that a certain portion of risk-taking can lead to positive experiences and positive development?
